Can Someone Tell Me The Thickness Of

Recommended Posts

I'm repairing the electronics for an old Gibson Explorer (I don't know how old, actually, but it seems older than most guitars I get my hands on) I could send you info you want. Send me a message if you got any more questions.

I've got to remember to copy down the neck measurements on that guitar actually - it feels just right. I really hope the guy who asked me to fix it forgets I have it - I don't want to give this back! (of course I will, though - I could never take a guitar like this from someone - god knows it'd break my heart if someone did it to me)

1 5/8" would be around 42mm, right? Does anyone know if ESP explorers are the same thickness or thicker than that? I'm making an explorer and I made the body 45mm thick because I thought that's how thick explorers were. Now, it does seem to weight a bit more than I would like. Probably because I made it too thick and mahogany isn't the lightest wood out there. I don't know whether should I plane it down to 42mm or leave it as it is :D I haven't routed any cavities or the neck pocket yet so it wouldn't be a problem if I had to make it thinner.

Anyone else with an explorer to take measurements? It would be of a great help :D
